Outback fibers was a suggested site although I’ve done a few columns on specific projects offered by them before. They are so much more than a wool fiber shop. One of the items that has caught my attention is their pre-felted fabrics that you can create your beautiful fashions or home decor projects with. These fabrics are called Needled Prefelt Wool Batting imported from Australia and they are just stunning. Imagine making a one-of-a-kind jacket out of this fabric or a gorgeous hat or purse. They have felting instructions on how to use this Needled Prefelt Wool Batting imported from Australia. They also carry felting needles and attachments for machine felting.
Outback fabric also carries beautiful roving, felting kits, Wolf felt batting, silk fiber, products for spinners and a spinner kits. They also carries the most beautiful handspun yarns I’ve ever seen. There is a gallery filled with beautiful Artistic Creations featuring outstanding fiber artists. Jill of Outback Fiber also hold workshops so contact her to request a workshop in your area. Or…come to Texas to visit us. Jill also conducts private classes.
